The Quebec health minister gave an update Wednesday which, considering we’ve seen a single case and she’s now home again in quarantine, can’t have been too much of a stretch. Clinics are ready, protocols are in place.

I saw some tweets where people said they had thought the metro was cleaned every day. My impression was that cleaners do go through every train at the end of the day, clearing out trash and cleaning up any obvious messes, but not usually sanitizing every surface.
